I tested two new fully charged unprotected KK ICR26650 against two Protected FourSevens 26650, and the unprotected KK couldn't get past 4.9A.

Ohhh - wow, that's an incredible protected cell then. Forgot, I posted this in the other HD2010 copper pill thread:

The 4.9A Nanjg is in the HD 2010 pill now. For the bare pill with a de-domed XM-L2 U2 1A/Noctigon, I measured 5.0A on each of the 2 Powerizers -- not bad. The SONY 50A got 4.95A, MOLI got 4.60A. On a stock HD2010 with the East-092 driver:

SONY 50A      5.6A

Powerizer #1  5.4A

Powerizer #2  5.4A

MOLI              5.3A

Samsung 20R  5.1A

KK ICR 4000   4.7A

KK ICR 4200   4.6A

KK INR 4000   4.55A

The KK's and 20R are the oldest and most used, while the others are newer. All are pretty much fresh, maybe charged in the last week or 2.

I see posts of the good stock hd 2010 having 5amps.. Is this okay on aluminum or should some measures be taken?

What's the length of the Protected FourSevens 26650? The only protected cells I've found so far that fit in a 3-cell light are the Trustfire Flames.

I wouldn’t be too happy running 5A on an Aluminium mcpcb, it probably won’t harm the emitter but you’re in the region of the output curve where you actually get lower output with increased current.
So you’ll definitely see lots of benefits going to copper pcb.
If you’re up for it, I would definitely recommend doing an emitter swap to some known emitter tint on a copper sinkpad/noctigon.

Edit: And if you want to do a direct driver swap into the stock pill to get rid of blinkies but retain the pseudo direct drive high mode of the East 092.
This is probably the best option.

You have to use a Nanjg 101 4x and stack 12× 7135s onto the back to get close 6A to an XML. You’ll only get that with the right batteries of course.
The nice thing is it drops right in and the retaining ring still fits, which isn’t the case with the 105c or KD 8× 7135 drivers that have components on both sides of the board.

Frankly I would just get this copper pill and not bother. Stacking chips 4 high is a real pain, it’s seriously annoying to do any more than 2 high |(

Wow I’ve read so many posts talking about stacking, but to see a pic of it… Shocked

That’s crazy-neat. Thanks for the info!

Woah.

I tried a 5 stack and it was a complete fail.

That looks like awesome ‘fun’!

If you’re going to build tall, running a strand of coppper braid vertically for “reinforcement” is essential. Bridging the gap between the pins is much easier that way.
At least that’s the only way I could pull it off, there’s members here who have been stacking for way longer and probably have some better tips Smile

I just use both sides of the board, stack one on top of all 8 on the Qlite driver for a theoretical 6.08A. Just got through doing this with the MT-G2 in my M8 moments ago, with Samsung 20R cells it’s pulling 5.65A at the tail, didn’t even check to see if the cells are topped off. They should be close if they’re not.

That’s some 3000 lumens on Hi, around 1000 on Med, and 400 on Lo. Approximately. Smile

How many AMC’s can be stacked into this C8 pill ?

I’m considering 12.
Is there suffice space ?

The original pill can fit an extra layer of AMC7135 chips on the top, so you could have 12 chips in total.

The 3x AMC7135 edition pill can accomodate two extra layers of AMC7135 chips, which allows 16 chips in total. Smile

Here’s some progress that we have made: Eyecandy alert

Your camera flash is making some of those beauties look almost like aluminium! This is simply unacceptable! Wink

Seriously, you need to put a filter in front of your flash so they’ll look like Gold instead. Smile

I don’t believe I used the flash, with my Nexus 4, the copper pills were washed out when I used it.

It’s only the lights on the ceiling. Smile

Did a quick tweak on one of the pictures, mostly white balance...

There are many things that can be said about copper pills. But I think everyone feels the urge to give one of those puppies a new home.. Wink

They sure look good!  Love

I also downloaded that pic, opened it up in Photoshop and tried to make those two baskets of copper appear on my desk, didn’t work. Maybe On1 or Topaz will get it. I’ll keep trying, but might wait til they’re threaded and drilled Wink

4.9A, double stack on the side:

4.9A, double stack on the back:

Might try 5.6A on for this copper pill, but only cell that might have a chance is a Powerizer...

Thanks for the photo edit RaceR, looks much better.

Great stacking skills. I’m assuming the chips can’t be stacked on the battery side of the driver due to space constraints?

+1 Maybe I’ll just keep it on the shelf as a display piece, almost seems a shame to hide it away inside an aluminium tube! Wink

PP sent as friend with standard tip for one copper C8 pill.
I plan to direct drive a Phatlight Pt-54 red led in it, which I heard from some that it draws 6A and others that it draws 13A. I’ll have to get an Omten switch from FT and better springs from saabluster.
I really like how the SolarForce M3 head looks compared to a C8, but the M3 reflector that the pill threads into isn’t itself threaded into the bezel.
I’m still in the market of buying 3 copper P60 pills though.

Got your PP and form, thanks.

Please do note that the Omten switch is actually rated for only 1.5A. Smile

Just a quick update, the pills should be ready by tomorrow afternoon KST so I’ll pick them up, fit each one into my lights and inspect them, and take a group photo. I’ll be shipping them out after that. Smile

Can hardly wait, the HD2010 pretty much is solely responsible for getting me into modding…it’ll be nice to have it at it’s optimum level finally! Smile

Great! Against my better judgement I now have a third HD2010 on route to house this pill.
Looking forward to it.
